Hundreds Of Charlotte Businesses Closing In Support Of #ADayWithoutImmigrants Movement


compare-foods-closingRestaurants, grocery stores, and other immigrant-owned businesses in Charlotte will be closing their doors today, in support of the national movement called a “Day Without Immigrants”.

The grassroots movement seeks to protest President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and highlight the contributions of the immigrant community throughout the country.

Millions of citizens and non-citizens alike have been spreading the movement online using #ADayWithoutImmigrants, as well as in local papers, flyers, and via word of mouth. The movement calls for for participants to skip work and school, close businesses and avoid making any purchases.

“One day is not going to be a big deal, but once they start deporting (immigrants), it’s going to start making a difference,” Juan Rodríguez, a U.S. citizen from Colombia, commented. “Businesses will be closing. Mortgages won’t be paid…the economy will start to slow down.”

Here in Charlotte, one of the largest chains to be closing its doors will be Compare Foods, a grocery store with 7 locations around our city.

Business all along Central Ave. have also stated that they will be shutting down for the day, including Sav-Way grocery store and Las Delicias Bakery.

According to the Spanish language Hola Noticias website, these are the business that are closed today around the Charlotte area:
